U.S. AMATEUR
Alabama All-American earns medalist honors with 9-under 132 August 13, 2012 By Pete Kowalski, USGA

Cherry Hills Village, Colo. – Bobby Wyatt, 20, of Mobile, Ala., a University of Alabama All-American, tied the record for lowest 36-hole stroke-play scoring at 9-under-par 132 on Tuesday at CommonGround Golf Course at the 2012 U.S. Amateur Championship.

Wyatt posted three birdies and one bogey for a 2-under-par 68 at par-70, 7,378-yard CommonGround, the companion course for stroke play, to tie Gregor Main (2011) and Hank Kim (1994) for the lowest medalist score in U.S. Amateur history.

I didn’t think about (the record) going into today, but it’s very humbling to have part of that record, Wyatt said. They change courses every year and there have been a lot of courses that par is higher than 70, 71. But it’s an honor. There have been a lot of great names to play in this championship and to do that certainly means a lot, but I have a lot of work to do this week. 

The 2012 U.S. Amateur Championship began with a field of 312 players competing in 36 holes of stroke play. The field is pared to the low 64 scores for six rounds of match play, which begins Wednesday at 8 a.m. MDT at the par-71, 7,409-yard Cherry Hills Country Club. The championship is scheduled to conclude with a 36-hole final on Sunday starting at 8:30 a.m. MDT.

The U.S. Amateur is one of 13 national championships conducted annually by the United States Golf Association, 10 of which are strictly for amateurs.

Wyatt, who shot a 7-under 64 at Cherry Hills Country Club Monday, understands that making the match-play field just one step in a grueling process.

I was pretty confident I was going to make match play so it was a good day for me, said Wyatt, who won the Sunnehanna Amateur in Johnstown, Pa., in June and was the runner-up at the Southeastern Conference Championship and the NCAA Regional in Athens, Ga., earlier this season. I’ve got to go and fine-tune things and work on the mental part of the game for me and my approach heading into the rest of the week. I played patient golf out there. I didn’t putt well really…I missed some putts, but I hit it really well. I feel real confident about things.

Cheng Tsung Pan, 20, of Sammamish, Wash. who is originally from Chinese Taipei, and Jeff Osberg, 28, of West Chester, Pa ., each posted a 5-under-par 65.at CommonGround on Tuesday to trail Wyatt by two strokes.

Pan, a sophomore at the University of Washington, made eight birdies against three bogeys.

I feel good about these two rounds, said Pan, who earned first-team All-Pacific 12 Conference as well as All-America honors in his freshman year at Washington in 2011-12. It gives me confidence going into match play. My goal is to win the tournament. Higher seeds always have an advantage.

Osberg, a certified public accountant who was a member of Guilford (N.C.) College’s NCAA Division III national championship team in 2005, logged six birdies, including his last three holes, and one bogey at CommonGround.

I just putted fantastically both days…probably the best I’ve putted in my life, Osberg said. I made everything I looked at – every par putt I needed to make.

Sebastian Vasquez, 22, of Mexico, followed a 65 at CommonGround with a 1-under 70 at Cherry Hills for a 6-under-par 136 total.

Also advancing to match play at 3-under-par 138 were two 2011 USA Walker Cup Team members: Chris Williams, 21, of Moscow, Idaho, who won the 2012 Western Amateur and is ranked No. 1 in the world, and Jordan Spieth, 19, of Dallas, the low amateur at the 2012 U.S. Open, who is ranked No. 3 in the world by the World Amateur Golf Ranking that is jointly administered by The R&A and the USGA.

The final 14 berths in match play will be determined in a 17-man playoff, which begins at 7 a.m. Wednesday at Cherry Hills.

Cherry Hills Village, Colo. -- Results of Tuesday’s second round of stroke play at the 2012 U.S. Amateur Championship, played at 7,409-yard, par-71 Cherry Hills Country Club and the 7,378-yard, par-70 CommonGround Golf Course.  (CH=Cherry Hills; CG=CommonGround; *=in playoff)
